– Proficient use of `kubectl` for interacting with Kubernetes clusters.

– Creation and management of simple Kubernetes deployments.

– Understanding and implementing basic networking concepts in Kubernetes.


Pods, Deployments, Service, etc:

– Creating and managing individual Pods in Kubernetes.

– Basics of Pod networking and communication.

– Introduction to Deployments and their role in managing application instances.

– Configuring and managing multi-container Pods.

– Implementing rolling updates and rollbacks with Deployments.

– Utilizing Helm for package management and simplifying Kubernetes resource definitions.


Scaling and Resource Management:

– Basics of scaling applications in Kubernetes (horizontal and vertical scaling).

– Introduction to resource requests and limits.

– Understanding the concept of Kubernetes namespaces.

– Implementing autoscaling based on metrics.

– Fine-tuning resource allocation for optimal performance.

– Managing resource quotas and limits within namespaces.





The Build and Optimization of CI/CD Pipeline for Continuous Application Release from Development to Operations

Aviation Industry

  • Orchestrated the setup and ongoing management of a robust CI/CD pipeline, resulting in a remarkable 40% improvement in team efficiency.
  • Implemented end-to-end automation of code deployment processes, leading to a significant reduction in time to market, slashing deployment duration from 8 hours to an agile 2 hours.
  • Deployed and configured open-source monitoring tools to actively observe and evaluate the health and performance of cloud-based resources, fostering proactive issue resolution.
  • Engineered comprehensive deployment scripts, effectively eliminating downtime for applications, and establishing a resilient infrastructure foundation.



Infrastructure Provisioning Automation for Testing and Development Environments, using Terraform

AWS & Azure

  • Increased the number of applications and S3 buckets created from 4 to 16 by creating a new terraform manifest that automated the infrastructure provisioning.
  • Implemented Terraform modules to streamline the provisioning process, ensuring consistency and scalability across different projects and environments.
  • Enhanced security measures by incorporating AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles and policies into the Terraform scripts, aligning with best practices.
  • Established a version control system for Terraform manifests, leveraging Git, to track changes, collaborate efficiently, and maintain a history of infrastructure modifications.


Kubernetes Cluster Deployment and Configuration for Production Environment

Healthcare Industry

  • Configured and managed Kubernetes clusters for production as well as non-production environments, using Terraform and AWS-EKS, ensuring high availability with 99.9% SLA for applications, and increased speed of deployments by 50%.
  •  Automated overall Kubernetes cluster deployment and management, providing robust performance optimization, health monitoring, and application deployment control.
  • Developed Helm charts for deploying, managing, and rolling new releases of applications.
  • Implemented security policies to ensure best security practices for applications.
